Autumn Lip Colors. Yep, It’s That Time Again!

It seems like I was just creating my summer palettes and looks and all of sudden, the hot (or lukewarm for us Chicagoans) summer has swiftly become a cooler fall. As you all know, I am a Beauty Budget Babe, meaning that I love to make the most of all cosmetic purchases. I splurge sometimes, but I really try to use colors and products until the package/pot/compact is EMPTY!

Changing up your makeup according to the season does not have to be a daunting task NOR do you have to run out and raid your local cosmetic stores to create a new look. I am recycling last year’s “Black Dahlia Metallic” Lip Tar by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC), which is a super sexy, electric take on the traditional Black Dahlia. I call this color a deep burgundy with a hint of fuchsia and gold, while OCC describes Black Dahlia Metallic as,

“Blackened burgundy with red pearl.” Whatever the description, I love how this color looks on its own, or when I’ve paired it with MAC Lip Pencil in Vino, an old standby that I’ve used on countless folks. I bought mine via OCC’s website but you can also purchase lip tar at Sephora. If you don’t know, let me tell you this: PLEASE use a lip brush to apply this product. A TINY dab will cover your lips completely! The highly pigmented formula does just what it promises, and you won’t be disappointed.

Until next time,
